If your MLB betting bankroll has taken a pounding that reminds you of the worst tooth pain you’ve ever experienced and you’d like to give it a bankroll-boosting anesthetic, then you’re in luck!

Thanks to this ‘Tooth Pain Tuesday’ MLB original betting breakdown, you’re going to get the inside scoop on the hottest and coldest teams in all of baseball heading into Tuesday night.

Some of last week’s red-hot teams are no longer riding the wave to Moneyline victories while some of their polar opposite counterparts have managed to get themselves off of today’s ‘Not’ list of ice-cold ballclubs.

MLB Betting Report on This Week’s Hottest/Coldest Teams

With that said and a full slate of MLB action on tap for tonight, let’s get started.

texas-rangers-logoTexas Rangers 5-0 ATS

The Rangers (21-23) are starting to find a bit of a groove after getting off to an horrific start this season. Texas has won six straight games while cashing in as a Moneyline underdog each time out to rank as the hottest team in all of baseball heading into tonight. Texas ranks seventh in scoring (4.58 rpg) and eight in home runs (49).

minnesota-twins-logoMinnesota Twins 4-1 ATS

The Twins (25-18) have won three straight and five of their last six games as they continue to exceed expectations for the season, which pretty much were for them to finish in the cellar in the AL Central. Minnesota ranks fifth in scoring (4.64 rpg).

pittsburgh-pirates-logoPittsburgh Pirates 4-1 ATS

Pittsburgh (22-22) has ripped off four straight wins as a moneyline favorite and five in their last seven games. The Pirates’ pitching staff has been outstanding in ranking second in team ERA (3.08) and quality starts (28).

cleveland-indians-logoCleveland Indians 4-1 ATS

Terry Francona’s ballclub (20-24) lost on Monday night to snap a six-game winning streak that had them as the hottest team in either league heading into yesterday evening. Cleveland ranks 11th in scoring (4.41 rpg) and first in pitcher strikeouts (421).

washington-nationals-logoWashington Nationals 4-1 ATS

The Nats (27-18) have won two straight and eight of their last nine games overall. Washington currently ranks third in scoring, averaging a stellar 4.76 runs per game while also ranking seventh in home runs (50) and eighth in team ERA (3.64).

Not – Each of the following teams has failed to cash in at least four times in their last five games.

cincinnati-reds-logoCincinnati Reds 0-5 ATS

The Reds (18-26) have actually lost a whopping nine straight games and rank a discouraging 27th in scoring (3.73 rpg) and equally disappointing 26th in team ERA (4.36). Ironically, the Reds rank sixth in home runs with an impressive 51.

chicago-white-sox-logoChicago White Sox 1-4 ATS

The ChiSox (19-23) have lost three straight and six of their last seven games and sit in last place in the AL Central heading into Tuesday night. The White Sox have lost five times as a Moneyline favorite in their last seven games and ranks an abysmal 29th in scoring (3.50 rpg) and an equally discouraging 25th in team ERA (4.30).

milwaukee-brewers-logoMilwaukee Brewers 1-4 ATS

The awful Brewers (16-30) have lost three straight and five of their last six games and ranks in the middle or bottom third in almost every significant statistical category except home runs (10th) and strikeouts (seventh).

new-york-yankees-logoNew York Yankees 1-4 ATS

Despite winning on Monday night, A-Rod and the New York Yankees (23-22) are about as cold as an igloo in Alaska. New York had lost six straight and eight of its previous nine before winning on Monday. Still, the Yanks rank sixth in scoring (4.62 rpg) and an identical sixth in pitcher strikeouts (381).

san-diego-padres-logoSan Diego Padres 1-4 ATS

The Padres (21-25) have lost five of six and a whopping eight of their last 10 games and ranks in the middle or bottom third in just about every meaningful offensive and defensive statistical category.

philadelphia-phillies-logoPhiladelphia Phillies 1-4 ATS

Just this past Thursday, Philadelphia was one of the hottest teams in either league. Now, the rebuilding Phils (19-28) have dropped two straight and four of their last five games while not scoring more than three runs in any loss. Philadelphia ranks a pitiful 30th in scoring (3.17 rpg) and identical 30th in home runs (26) and OPS (.647). Still, Philadelphia is one game better than the NL East cellar-dwelling Marlins (18-28).

So there you have it baseball bettors, the hottest and coldest MLB teams in all of baseball. Now head on over to the Sportsbook and get busy!
